Breaking Ground on 7 Homes in Fort Lauderdale

We are excited to break ground on the construction of seven new homes in the Washington Park community of Fort Lauderdale. These homes are part of a major revitalization effort by Broward County, Habitat for Humanity of Broward and other partners to create safer, more vibrant and family-friendly communities in the Broward Municipal Services District, an area long targeted for revitalization.
